Reboot UK presents an intimate evening of music.
Join us to celebrate Reboot’s National Day of Unplugging with an intimate night of unplugged music from a specially curated line-up of artists: Starsailor frontman James Walsh, Swedish-Iranian R&B artist Ayelle and folk-pop singer/songwriter Joe Jury.
Leave your mobile devices at the door, slouch on a bean bag and connect with the people around you – not just those on Facebook. The National Day of Unplugging is an idea generated by US-based organisation Reboot, inspired by the rituals of Shabbat, encouraging us to carve out one day per week to relax, reflect, and connect with loved ones.
After almost a decade fronting multi-million selling band Starsailor, James Walsh has emerged as a singer-songwriter in his own right. He’s written songs with Eliza Doolittle, Melanie C, Suzanne Vega, and Professor Green – to name a few; as well as releasing his debut solo album ‘Turning Point’ back in 2014. Fresh from touring the UK with Starsailor, James has been back in the studio with the band recording their new album, which is due out later this year.
Swedish-Iranian R&B singer Ayelle’s upfront lyrics take inspiration from feminism and her own life experience, and her downtempo electro-R&B has been compared to the likes of Banks, Kelela and Rihanna. Since releasing her debut EP 'Machine' last year, Ayelle has collaborated widely, including on the Spotify Fresh Finds favourite ‘Take Your Time’ with Swedish producer Osmo, which has racked up over 2 million streams to date. Her next single, Issues, is set for release on February 7th.
Singer/songwriter Joe Jury has drawn on the influence of folk and 80s pop to create his debut EP, The Streets of Campden, out February 10th, and produced by LostBoy. Acoustic guitar arpeggios, synths, and electronic sounds combine with his unique voice to create catchy, easy-going songs which have already delighted audiences at festivals throughout 2016.
This event was made possible in part by a generous contribution from the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation.
